James Thompson vs Bobby Lashley at Super Fight LeagueIn the main event at Super Fight League 3 in New Delhi, India, James “The Colossus” Thompson won a unanimous decision over former Strikeforce fighter Bobby Lashley in front of more than 10,000 fans. It was Thompson’s second fight in the SFL after destroying Bob Sapp in the inaugural show.

Despite Lashley’s meteoric rise to fame since his introduction into the world of MMA, the success that he has had against upper-level competition has been short of extraordinary. There was a certain level of back and forth in this match, but in the end, Lashley was exhausted and visibly beaten when the scorecards were read.

The striking and grappling in the match moved at the approximate speed of smell, with both fighters running out of steam near the end of the second round.

All three judges scored the fight 29-28 for Thompson, who seems to have found a home at the top of SFL cards. The win was Thompson’s third in four fights, which included a no contest, while Lashley ended a two-fight winning streak with the loss.

In other results:

Trevor Prangley did exactly what he was expected to do against little known Baga Agaev, handing Agaev a brutal knockout loss in the third round.  Agaev was clearly taken out of his comfort zone. Prangley landed shots at will with little in the way of resistance from his inexperienced foe.

Joanne Calderwood and Lena Ovchynnikova came to fight, and so they did for the length of their scheduled bout. Calderwood took a well-earned decision by overwhelming Ovchynnikova with a volley of takedowns and pinpoint strikes.  Ovchynnikova had her moments, but at the final bell, there was no question who had won the fight.

The second fastest fight of the night saw Kultar Gill take a mere 51 seconds to bring Chatmongkhom Simma to the edge of unconsciousness and force a quick stoppage. Simma appeared to be out on his feet momentarily, woken up by another crisp punch, then put into a haze again with the follow up; a truly impressive win by an obviously determined Gill.
